Check out the Miken FREAK FX-700 both balanced and endload, along with Worth 454 ASA verions balanaced and endload.
They have lime green handles to make them readily seen as ASA versions.
They do take a lot of breaking in.
Easton Salvo isn't bad either but also requires a lot of break in time.

Thanks for the imput, I'm swinging endload and thinking about going balanced since I was swinging a balanced same weight as mine and it seemed lighter. Do you think this is typical of endload vs. balance. I have also always subscibed to going lighter, using bat speed theory, but I'm noticing a lot of the guys going heavier, with balanced I may be able to do that. I appreciate your comments since I'm just getting introduced to playing with kids my age.

Sunshine1949, If you want the same feel in a balanced bat go up and ounce.

I am breaking in a 27 and 28 Reebok Vector. Like both of them and both have a solid feel and 4MPH faster speed swing. I have been hitting off the tee and hit a couple yesterday 300 with the 27.
